self-service car wash at night

 

Apart from its practical function as transportation, cars embody the characteristic of cognitive symbols, similar to the outer appearance of a human being. Therefore, the act of looking after the appearance of cars can be seen as a reasonable action in the modern era. The lighting conditions at night allow a more consistent visual experience for people to inspect the conditions of their cars. In addition, the steel structure of self-service car washes provides deconstructive expressions for nighttime photography.

汽車除了移動的實際功能,在象徵意義中,更具有認知符號的特色,就像個人的外在一般。於是對汽車外觀的打理,反映了現代人合理的行為活動;尤其在夜晚,洗車場燈光提供人們相較於白天更為一致的條件,檢查洗車狀況。而自助洗車場本身的鋼骨式結構,為夜間景觀攝影提供解構型的表現。
